Nolinor B732 at Val d'Or on Nov 2nd 2016, ATC operational error
Last Update: November 16, 2016 / 22:14:42 GMT/Zulu time
A medevac flight with just two crew on board had performed an ILS approach to runway 18 but had gone around after the approach became unstable and performed a DME arc via waypoint RESOM at 5000 feet to rejoin ILS runway 18. The crew was advised to be number one for the approach but came into conflict with the Boeing. After being clear of conflict the medevac flight landed safely too.
The Canadian TSB reported that Val D'Or does not feature radar services. The Flight Service Station at Val D'Or had indicated into the ATC computer system that the medevac flight was on the ground already which prompted Approach to release the Boeing out of the hold and clear for the approach. According to TCAS data the minimum separation reduced to less than 400 feet vertical and less than a nautical mile horizontally. NAV Canada is conducting a level 2 investigation into the occurrence.
